The Twentieth Annual Miss Klingon Empire Beauty Pageant
is open to any qualified attending female member of the 2019 Treklanta
who is at least 18 years of age and who agrees to abide by the rules
of this contest as posted here, now and in the future. There
is NO registration fee or any additional cost to participate.
Membership in or affiliation with any Klingon-oriented organization
(i.e., KAG, KLAW, etc.) is not required.
in the 2019 Miss Klingon Empire Beauty Pageant will be judged
in three separate categories. They include:
Contestants will be judged on the quality and professionalism
of their costumes, make-up and "modeling." Contestants may
assume the identity of any Klingon female character from any incarnation
of Star Trek or any original Klingon persona of their own
creation. Contestants will be asked to walk a runway in
their Klingon persona. Poise, grace and the authenticity
of her persona will be the criteria for judging.
"Talent" Contestants will be allowed NO MORE
THAN FIVE MINUTES to demonstrate a talent or skill.
Contestants may sing, dance, act, perform or make any other type
of presentation that demonstrates a talent or skill so long as
the presentation does not endanger herself, other contestants,
the master of ceremonies, the judges or the audience. (In
other words, no flaming bat'leth twirling, etc.) Contestants
are encouraged but not required to present a Klingon-themed talent
or skill. Originality and the authenticity of her persona
will be the criteria for judging. Contestants must disclose
to the Treklanta staff their talent act intentions prior to the
convention for planning purposes, but such information will be
kept strictly confidential. Audio, video or other technical
equipment needed for a specific talent presentation can usually
be provided with sufficient advance notice.
"Personality" Each contestant will either be asked
a question to which she must respond. Contestants who
dodge, avoid or refuse to answer the question will be disqualified.
The authenticity of her answer or performance, and of her persona,
will be the criteria for judging.
